CMQ commences drilling on Red Canyon project


    CALGARY, June 18 /CNW/ - CMQ Resources Inc. (TSXV: NV) ("CMQ") is pleased
to announce it has commenced drilling at Red Canyon, a sediment-hosted gold
project in Eureka county, Nevada. A drill program of approximately 5,000 feet
(about 1,524 metres) is anticipated in up to seven reverse circulation drill
holes at the Ice prospect.
    CMQ's drilling program will attempt to expand a near-surface zone of
oxidized gold mineralization at Ice. Exploration potential, in lower plate
carbonate rocks, is open along strike to the northeast in areas covered by
younger volcanic rocks. The exploration potential to the northeast is defined

    1.  Five drill holes that intersected gold mineralization;
    2.  Geologic mapping;
    3.  Structural contouring;
    4.  A 3-D geochemical evaluation;
    5.  Gravity data.

    Select drill hole intercepts from Ice include:

    -   95 feet of 0.117 ounce gold per ton from 20 feet to 115 feet
        (29.0 metres (m) of 4.012 grams gold per tonne from 6.1 m to 35.1 m)
        in KR-001;
    -   85 feet of 0.046 ounce gold per ton from 15 feet to 100 feet (25.9 m
        of 1.578 grams gold per tonne from 4.6 m to 30.5 m) in ROM07-01;
    -   60 feet of 0.033 ounce gold per ton from 200 feet to 260 feet (18.3 m
        of 1.132 grams gold per tonne from 61.0 to 79.3 m) in M-9.

    This drill program is the first phase of the 2009 drill campaign at Red
Canyon. A second round of drilling is planned for later in the year subject to
the evaluation of assay results and the availability of financing.
    The Red Canyon project is made up of 237 unpatented lode mining claims
(7.7 square miles/19.8 square kilometres) on the Battle Mountain-Eureka trend
and adjoins US Gold's Tonkin Springs property to the west. The project covers
an erosional window that exposes altered, brecciated and silicified lower
plate carbonate rocks that are age equivalent to the rocks hosting the Cortez
Hills gold deposit (plus 8.5 million ounces).
